Life drawing and some updates

It was great to get back to life drawing last week and also catch up with a bunch of people I haven't seen in a while. I was also excited to excavate an old pen from my art drawer which turned out to work well for gestures.







I really don't know what to do with myself with poses over 3 minutes sometimes. I usually end up overworking the gesture. So instead, my pen wanders to drawing the other artists in the room.



So now, a little blog news. I'm going to be cutting back my posts to once a week (on Wednesdays) for a while. The reason for this is because I want to focus better on a long running project I'm trying to get off the ground. I'm cutting back on my distractions, and blogging 3 times a week is one of them. I'm really excited about this project and I'm looking forward to sharing more about it in the coming months. See ya next week!

I really like those pen gestures. Really nice. I'm trying to "loosen" up and be able to capture more with pen, but it's hard. You've got them down pat!
I know what you mean also about some of the longer poses, and I try to do the same, but it doesn't work out. That's why I bring the watercolors, to explore color and volume that way.
Good luck with the longer projects, I know how hard they can be, and how easily distracted we can all get sometimes.
Hope to see you at the next figure class.

Thanks guys! Hopefully I'll be back at figure drawing soon, but it's the last month before MoCCA, so I'll probably have a bunch of stuff to finish up.

I really like your gestures here ... they contain a lot of implied energy and movement. It was fun looking at the sketchers' faces --- made me feel like I'm back sitting across the room from them!
